Cut the loses with White and move him on.
What. Lol

Cut our losses with a future prime starting England international we’ve just paid £50mil for less then a year ago.

What makes you say that out of Curiosity why wouldn’t you want a choice of White, Saliba & Gabriel for our CB’s

As someone said earlier, free transfers are rarely as financially savvy as they seem.

The players get an inflated wage, which both unbalances the wage structure and if they don't work out they're impossible to shift elsewhere. Eg Kolasinac.

If we’re after a backup leftie CB wouldn’t Zagadou be a decent option?
Haven’t seen him enough. Opinions on him?

Due to how poor White has been this season. Started shaky 5hen had 6 weeks of very good form then was liability defensively for the rest of the season. Had it not been for Whites Price tag, Holding (who has excellent in the vast majority of his peformances this season) would be ahead of him.

Hopefully he come good but he looks like the English Luiz to me.

I'm not sure if this is sincere or parody, but 1) Holding has been excellent in a closer role, but hugely uncomfortable when playing the high line crucial to our better performances and 2) David Luiz used to retreat to his own box anytime the opposition got the ball (or rashly dived in when exposed up field).

White isn't as good in the air as Holding, and not quite as physical, but every other aspect of his play is superior, and he is vital for our tactical approach.

Its true his form dropped off as our defence was disrupted due to injuries and he was carrying knocks himself, but prior to that he was mostly excellent

Holding is superior to White in every defensive aspect - tacking, airal duels, positioning and general reading of the game defensively.

White can pass a ball better, that's it.
White had a short 6 weeks period of good form and was very poor apart from that period.

Dybala, Di Maria, Zagadou, Tolisso are players I've wanted in the past I haven't seen enough of Grillitch but I wonder if the ship has sailed on all of them. We have a way of getting the right player a couple of years late.

Theese a just a select few that are available on a free, surely there is a bargain to pick up even with some hefty sign on fee's and wages.

Personally I would like to see us be serious and go in for Dybala, he's a top quality striker in his prime. Think he could have an Alexis-Esque impact. Big Signing on fee and big wages.

Ousmane Dembele is a baller but his injury record concerns me and would be an expensive gamble that'll likely backfire.

Isco is a baller too but too expensive to be an Ødegaard back up and would hinder ESR progress.

Xavi Simons would be a quality addition and would get the game time with Europa.

Lastly, Tolisso as an upgrade on Elneny? Again an expensive squad player so probably worth swerving.

What's everyone's thoughts on the hand me down market? Worth a dip?
I will take Di Maria
Suarez can be a great move for us.
Not much else that i like from that list.

Remember offering a cheeky one quid more than his release clause for Suarez? :lol:

Honestly I feel only Pogba and Dybala would be worth signing out of that list of players because they fit the positions and profiles we’re looking for. But both of them will ask for insane wages and signing bonuses.
 

Arsenal Quotes

In June 1996, David Dein, Peter Hill-Wood and Danny Fiszman came out to Nagoya to meet me on behalf of Arsenal. Within an hour we came to an agreement. The Japanese directors didn't try to keep hold of me in the usual way but talked with persuasive arguments... But as far as I was concerned, the decision was taken. Arsenal. A decision that would change my life.
